Abstract

Microstructure of a-WO3 films prepared by electron beam vacuum evaporation was examined based on XRD. The peak positions in the observed PDFs corresponded with those in the PDFs calculated from the crystal structure of hexagonal WO3 and WO3 · 1 3H2O, and the framework structure of the films was therefore thought to consist of the basic structure of these crystals, three-, four-, and six-membered rings formed by WO6 octahedra. Microcluster models in which the atomic arrangement was similar to that of hexagonal WO3 were assumed and investigated in detail. The pair distribution functions calculated from these models showed good agreement with the observed values, and the structure of a-WO3 films was consequently suggested to consist of clusters in which the octahedra were arranged in the same manner as those in hexagonal WO3.
